Culpability
11 April 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Law And Order reverses the usual process in the investigation because we have a perpetrator before we have a body. Just what is Chevy Chase's culpability is still an issue.

Chase is picked up for drunk driving and among other things he has blood on him that's not his. He's also sloshed to the gills and muttering all kinds of anti-Semitic statements along the lines of Mel Gibson.

The body comes hours later and it's the female and Jewish producer of his canceled sit com. What Chase is willing to concede is that he disposed of the body. Too bad he wasn't smart enough to dispose of the gun. But it's his 12 year old son Jaymie Dornan who confesses to the shooting.

Dornan is in Chase's custody and is heavily influenced by him. And it's Chase who Sam Waterston and Alana Dela Garza want to nail. The issue is how much influence Chase has and can they break it?

Chase in a profession where an ego is a given has one Godzilla size ego. You have to see him in action to appreciate the scope.
